Go: Goroutine and Preemption

Illustration created for “A Journey With Go”, made from the original Go Gopher, created by Renee French.

ℹ️ This article is based on Go 1.13.

ℹ️ Go implements an asynchronous preemption in Go 1.14, making some part of this article obsolete. However, those sections will be marked as it, making the article still useful to understand the need for the asynchronous preemption.
For more details about asynchronous preemption, I suggest you read “
Go: Asynchronous Preemption.”
